Leigh Services Launched

In a bizarre turn of events, I have finally gotten round to setting up a website to provide Home Users and Small Businesses with IT support.

Seemed like a good idea and I have tried to be a little cunning and configured a Self Service Portal for users to log their own calls. Emails can also be submitted that will be logged as support calls.

Web Address is
Self Service Email Address

If your feeling helpful, please take a gander and offer any criticisms (preferably helpful rather than just sarcastic).

Onwards and upwards....perhaps a more prosperous year???

Small Children & Shopping Trips

Sometimes, I wonder why we do it.....I don't mean why do we have kids but more, why do we take them with us when we go shopping. They have this hideous habit of "getting bored" at a drop of the hat and then begin trying to "have fun"......a concept that they do not fully comprehend. For some reason, a child's  idea of fun (or at least my son's) seems to involve "irritating his parents". In itself, it sounds like an excellent game, which he begins by picking up any item that he "really wants" or is his "favourite" and moaning about it until we start to shout at him.

I love my son very much but being embarrassed by him in Asda's (or indeed any other shop) really doesn't do it for me. After being shouted at, he begins the sulk routine.....something we have all done and as parents, get plenty of time to experience.

As you can see from the picture, he really has the hang of it ;-)

We are slowly beginning to train him out of it as much as he is training us to ignore it.

We can only hope it is just a phase and he will indeed grow out of it as I have.........fortunately for my parents, I no longer use this tactic.

2008 New Year Message

2008 has been a different kind of year. A time for new jobs, new friends, old jobs and old friends. Not sure about anyone else but it has been a bit of a Helter Skelter.

With the onset of our coming recession, it will hopefully not be as dark and dismal as they make out on the news and more a year that myself, my family and all my friends will enjoy and if we are lucky, be more prosperous.

All that in mind, I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas break and go on to have a very Happy New Year.

Look forward to seeing you all very soon.

Take care x
